Digital Comics Store Update (18th August 2010)
Hi everybody – another Wednesday brings another fine selection of Digital Comics for your PSP, including more epic Cap, another bottle of True Blood, more Sonic, the fabulous Street Code….and the legendary Bum Bum the Painter. So what are you waiting for?
STREET CODE is the tale of Jack, a native New York bruiser, fed up with living in the dregs of a drug-addled Alphabet City. After escaping to a fresh start in Brooklyn, Jack must now negotiate a new strain of street logic–where most everything he encounters is not as it seems. With Street Code, creator Dean Haspiel returns to his semi-autobiographical roots and explores the emotional truths between prime and primate. Issue one is now available on your PSP – oh, and it’s FREE, so check it out. (To compliment the reading experience, why not shake your rump to Dean Haspiel’s Street Code music mix here – a list of music he grew up listening to, including Public Enemy, Run DMC, Daft Punk and 2-Tone’s finest, The Specials)
Elsewhere, the stunning Brubaker/Epting Captain America saga continues with “The Man Who Bought America”, where the Red Skull makes an unexpected move for the very soul of America.
Back in sun-drenched Bon Temps, True Blood continues with another fine adaptation of the hit TV show. In issue #2 , psychic waitress and vampire fetishist Sookie Stackhouse is forced to reveal her deepest, most shameful secret to save the lives of Bill and her friends. If you haven’t already done so, download the preview episode. It’s totally FREE.
A new Sonic The Hedgehog series launches this week from Archie Comics. Alongside everyone’s favourite blue anthropomorphic hedgehog, Sonic Universe stars Blaze the Cat, Marine the Raccoon, Rouge the Bat, Metal Sonic, Shadow, Knuckles and many more mischievous oiks up to no good.

You can buy comics from PlayStation Store using an internet-enabled PSP – just fire it up and hit the “Comics” tab at the top of the Store. Alternatively, Digital Comics can be purchased through Media Go using a PC (top tip – with the latest version of Media Go you can add star ratings – a great way to sort your comic collection. Donald Duck and Bum Bum the Painter gets 5 stars from me for its title alone).
While you’re finished browsing the new additions to the Store, check out our new Bundles section for a great way to build your Digital Comics collection. Enjoy complete uninterrupted stories featuring Tank Girl, Fantastic Four, Star Trek, Zombies vs Robots and many more – all in one easy download, at great value for money too.
